I'm sure there are ILLEGAL pirated copies being distributed by file sharing schemes. Don't expect help in finding these here.

I agree with jonc. I've downloaded a few of these freebies in the past and found the quality to be crap. If you want a copy of a copyrighted movie, save your money and BUY it. You'll enjoy a store-bought copy of it more than those crappy "cam" shot pieces of $#!+ anyway.

I was actually referring to the copyrighted DVD rips that people "share" for "free" over the Internet. This is theft and I wouldn't expect people here to encourage it. Anyway, if sonya isn't willing to pay a few bucks for a legitimate copy, I doubt that this is really very important to her.

I've seen a few of those as well and I wasn't to impressed with them either. For some reason I can't fathom the uploaders of these files tend to cut off the end credits of the rips as well as the "cams". As far as I'm concerned, it's just another reason to buy legit copies over illegal downloads. Another reason not to go that route is this; I have a brother-in-law who was fined $3000 last year for downloading from one of these file sharing networks. It just ain't worth it.

While I love and support illegal downloading, this is just dumb. You can get the latest PEARL HARBOR movie for less than two bucks, used, on Amazon. If I like a movie and can get it for just a couple of bucks, I buy it. It's cheaper in terms of time: hand over $2 (+ $3 shipping) and get a packaged movie OR download and burn with all the surprises and potential technical pitfalls.

It illustrates where entertainment marketing should be headed. Make a movie a $3 download with guaranteed quality, and piracy would rapidly diminish.

"I love and support illegal downloading"

I hear shoplifting is pretty fun, too.

First off, why would someone think that the Internet Archive is the place to ask for obviously copyrighted material? Do they even understand where they're posting? This reminds me of when you look at the message boards of fan websites for celebrities, and there are all kinds of posts from people who seem to think they're actually sending a personal e-mail to the celebrity.

Secondly, why would anyone want a copy of the 2001 Pearl Harbour?

Finally, If they came up with the idea of libraries today, big publishing companies would consider them and their patrons to be pirates.

Illegal downloading is obviously a lot different from actually stealing a real item. If I can't afford an iPod, and I walk into a store and take it, I've deprived the store of one iPod, and given them nothing in return.

If I can't afford to buy DVDs, and I illegally download the movie instead, everyone involved is in exactly the same position as if I hadn't decided to see the film at all.

Obviously, I'm still not paying for a service they've provided, but it's clearly not the moral equivalent of shoplifting.

Illegally downloading TV shows, on the other hand, I don't see any moral issue with. Especially if they're not available on DVD, or they're available to view on the network's website if you live in the US, but can't be viewed in Canada (where I live).

Because copyright isn't physical property, US law actually aggrees that copyright infringement is not theft. The 1985 Supreme court ruling "Dowling v United States" found that infringing copies of copyright works could not be treated as stolen goods. This precident has never been challenged or repealed. The "downloading IS stealing" stuff is just copyright lobby's PR people being creative.

We're not exactly talking about copyright infringement here. People are knowingly taking merchants' goods through a middle party without paying the retail price. Copyright infringement is unauthorized use. The people sharing the files might be "infringing," but the downloaders are "stealing." Maybe pulling hairs, though.

No one is "taking merchants' goods". No physical item is being taken from the merchants' shelves. Digital copies are being made.

That's an interesting concept. Suppose I download shareware, and crack the license code. I decline to pay the author. Where does that fall in your book?

Copies which, by being made without consent of and fair payment to the creator of the work, deny the creator of the work fair compensation for the goods OR services (however you choose to label it) they are providing for your entertainment. Be they a wealthy studio mogul, or a broke indie living in his car.

Theft is theft.

Only (in my experience) the "broke indie living in his car" is far more likely to want to give away his material for free, and be happy to learn someone actually has an interest in his material.

A few things though: If I download a copyrighted movie from 1935, NOBODY involved in the making of the movie is profiting. The very idea that I can go and buy the rights to a movie that is 75 years old, and then continue to profit from its sale is complete and utter bullshit. I didn't have anything to do with making it. I just happened to have enough money to buy myself the right to make more money.

If that's morally right, and downloading a copy of "All Quiet on the Western Front" is morally wrong, then... well, I don't even know what that says about morality.

Then again, how is the movie industry ever going to be able to continue to bring us high quality, high budget fare like Pearl Harbor (2001), if we don't continue to pay for the DVDs of these wonderful pieces of art?

As Video-Cellar pointed out, even the courts don't call it "theft"; it's copyright infringement.

The statement "Theft is theft" doesn't help us determine what is theft and what is not theft.

I'm not debating whether copying films that are under copyright is lawful or ethical. I'm simply stating the obvious:
No one is removing goods from the merchant's inventory.

The court ruling dealt specifically with bootleg records and whether bootleg records could be treated as stolen goods. The court decided they could not be treated as such. I should have made it clearer that I was saying that the law does not see infringing copies as stolen goods or purchasing, obtaining, transporting them to be equal to dealing with stolen goods. However, the law does see uploading and downloading copyright items as copyright infringement not theft.

How about recording a tv show or movie off of HBO and adding it to your collection? Where does something like that fall? Or how about borrowing a buddy's record album a putting it on a cassette like a lot of us did years ago? On some level, isn't that sort of the same thing?

The right to tape something off TV and watch it later [time shifting] is protected as fair use in US law (and most other countries call it a "non-infringing copy") it only becomes copyright infringement if you offer the copy for sale or trade.
Format shifting (upgrading one format to another [ie record to tape or cd, cd to MP3]) is also protectected as fair use but only if you own the copy in the original format. Becomes infringing if you discard the original format or offer the new format for sale or trade.
